Did mine a few days ago-
It was reasonably easy- just needed to remove the polen filter housing and the plastic tray that it sits on to access- I think it was six or eight bolts in total.

It was still a fiddle to get the sensor out- nice to hear the vacuum hiss when it came out. I used a couple of long screw drivers to prise it out. and the same to locate and push the new sensor back in. The rubber grommet looked prety clean, so didn't bother removing it.

No longer have the warning light and anoying sound on start up, which is a result, but the stop start isn't working- I wonder whether there is a fault code that needs re-setting?

The part number is different from my original one. As far as I can tell there is a new version- my original part number is 6786746 (now obsolete). The replacement is 6875605

Had a new battery fitted last week and the S/S kicked in yesterday. £170 from a local motor factor for a Lucas unit, with the software re-set. The last one did well- it was the original and was nearly 8 years old!
